[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I'm stuffed. I worked until 6.45 tonight with only 10 minutes for lunch. Normally, my lunch break is not negotiable - I take half hour no matter what - but I didn't get a chance today. I missed my training run so headed into the gym and did a half hour run on the treadmill instead. Mostly I don't use the incline on the treadmill but today I put it on random and had some huge hills to run up and down. Whoa, that makes a huge difference. Afterwards I did the rower. I thought it was harder than usual so I checked the setting and it was on 9 (out of 10). Damn. No wonder I could only manage 4 minutes.
I'm also stuffed because I've been eating like a piggy all day. I took a shitload of fruit to work with me so I wouldn't be tempted by chocolate, thinking I could leave some for tomorrow. Well I ate it all. Then I ate chocolate too. Well, one of the guys was given some of the super good chocolate (Haighs, I think) and he was handing them around. How the hell do you say no to that? You don't. It was damn fine too.
I've noticed that when someone offers me something like that, I do eat it slowly and savour it whereas when I buy the same thing for myself I pig it. I think it comes from knowing that gift chocolate is rarity whereas I can always buy more for myself. Maybe I should restrict my chocolate eating to other people's.
Well it's almost time for bed.
Good to hear your leg is good for the running again, kathryn. getting to the gym after eating a bit extra during the day, will help even things out. Well done. i was babysitting the other night and got given some chocolate, and it was gone in a flash. To make up i try to eat a little lighter the next day, and to exercise well. It is hard when you are dong long hours of work to fit time in for exercise, so you did well.

What a great idea!! I think i'll try the chocolate prezzie thing too. The kewl thing is that I hardly ever get offered chocolate hehe I also find that if i drink a fizzy diet drink when i am having a chocolate craving, it seems to take it away :) most of the time.
:) that's quite a good idea actually!
I like the sound of that! Who wants to pig out in front of other people, especially co-workers! I think I might go that a go!
I LOVE the random setting on the treadmill - it pushes me much harder than I push myself. Try covering up the display so you don't know what's coming...
Don't stress about the small piece of chocolate you ate. You certainly are working it off at the gym lately.
I wish I could restrict my choc eating to other people giving it to me! Mmm, chocolate. I've been craving it today because I'm a little tired so enjoyed a bag of M&M's...slowly...very slowly. 5.5 points later, damn.
LMAO I find it funny because I am like you - I see other fat people and I want to give them some of my new found knowledge. I want to help them change and reform like I have. And then (if it's my free day) I eat rocky road and hot jam donuts. Yummy! LMAO
No way can you refuse free chocolate, that is like saying no to free alcohol. The party Gods will strike you down if you do that young lady!! hehe
